In 1789 a young politician named William Wilberforce forfeited his reputation among the London elite to campaign against the British slave trade. He introduced an abolitionist bill every year for twenty years with little success. When depression, stress and sickness threatened to shorten his life, he finally took a break. After his respite Wilberforce worked on a creative political strategy that finally slid the bill through the House of Commons.
